Hans olde Monnikhof, owner, 3rd generation and director of De Monnik Dranken tells: “Our family business has made qualitative steps in recent years, resulting in growth. In order to ensure growth and, in particular, the quality in the broadest sense of the word in the future, we need to have sufficient warehouse and office space at our disposal. Given the fact that our current building is adjacent to the business premises of 15, Zwollestraat, it was a logical choice for us to take over the property when the opportunity arose”.
